The best plot twist in the history of SF threads when Matt chimes in post 151 :lurk:

I grabbed a couple items from the collection, including the crazy loud orange Harris Tweed trousers. I was really tempted to grab the matching tweed sportcoat or CPO shirt but decided to hold off since who knows when I’d actually ever wear one of those. They do look fun though…

I think the “Wes Anderson” comparison was a pretty good one.

FWIW, when the collection first dropped, most everything was about 20% cheaper on the J. Press website (though they had a smaller selection). About 20 minutes or so after I made my purchases though, I noticed J. Press had raised their prices to match the prices on the Todd Snyder site.
you have to post a fit pic with those. or PM me. I really want to see them IRL.

I lack the creative vision to see how I could pull them off.

I love the orange Harris Tweed chore coat. I think I’ll make one for myself this winter…

I thought about it for two days and then I gave in and ordered the orange Harris Tweed chore coat and trousers - because basically this is the kind of thing I have always wanted and which simply doesn't exist most of the time and if I didn't get them I would really regret it. This is my first new clothing purchase in quite a while. And yes, I will probably wear them together. This may not surprise people here... ;)

I don’t know that I can pull them off either but I’m certainly willing to try!

holy shit this was almost as entertaining as bespoke denim shirts
meanwhile my man is throwing up fits with a hawk
That’s it, I give up. I’ll never achieve this level of greatness because I can’t afford to jawnz on a fuckin HAWK
Yo I want them too, but I have my eyes on other things too, I feel like they would look pretty sick with some slip on vans for some skater-y vibes.
Was seriously considering as well but then I got the chance to get an indigo jumpsuit from Blluemade and I think that fits the same hole in my wardrobe.

Price is prohibitive + they don't sell corduroys right now.
If you're not opposed to buying used keep an eye out for a 2015 D02 corduroy model. In my opinion the D02 fit during the Hedi era was better and I believe that's the only year he made them in the corduroy version. They're not hyped at all so you should be able to find them for a good price at some point. They were also made in the D01 fit which is a slim fit instead of skinny that you might be interested in.

You can also simply go for current era cords but like I said the fit is different.

Get a pair with stretch in it and size down?

Sizing down when you're 28 inches in the waist, and most retailers already barely stock that size 😞
I do like this recommendation, however; someone should give it a try.
